About us

We are #TeamLNWH.

Our 9,000 strong team look after a wonderfully diverse population of more than 1 million people in north west London and beyond from our three hospitals:

  • Central Middlesex in Brent
  • Ealing Hospital in Ealing
  • Northwick Park in Harrow

We also run sexual health services across Brent, Ealing, Harrow, and Hillingdon.

Central Middlesex Hospital

Central Middlesex Hospital is in Park Royal, on the border between Ealing and Brent. It’s one of the newest hospitals in the capital, and our specialist hub.

From bowels to broken bones, it’s where we can really focus on planned care and surgery.

St. Mark’s, our centre of excellence for bowel cancer, is based at Central Middlesex Hospital too, with satellite clinics at Northwick Park and Ealing hospitals.

And later this year we’re opening the doors to a truly one of a kind, brand-new, Elective orthopaedic centre with our acute collaborative partners in north west London.

The centre will help over 4,000 north west Londoners a year who need joint and bone surgery to regain their independence.

Our sexual health and contraceptive services run services from Central Middlesex, and in the community in Brent, Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon.

The predecessor to Central Middlesex Hospital, Park Royal Hospital, famously hosted Diana, Princess of Wales, and singer Elton John, during the height of the HIV and aids epidemic in the 80s.

Nearby, the Bakerloo and Overground lines stop at Harlesden, the Central line at North Acton, and the Piccadilly line at Park Royal. Anyone of them will get you to the trendiest parts of west London in no time at all.

Ealing Hospital

Ealing Hospital is a district general hospital that is truly at the heart of the Southall community.

After all, it’s where Beryl Carr (the oldest and most famous NHS volunteer) spends her time, on the till in the Ealing League of Friends cafe.

Soon, Ealing Hospital will host a new community diagnostics hub: a brand-new service that offers rapid diagnostic testing for GPs in the area. When the hub opens, it’ll join smaller, similar services in Wembley and Willesden, aimed at improving access to medical imaging.

Ealing Hospital is just a short bus journey to Ealing Broadway, where the Elizabeth Line will whizz you to central London in as little as 22 minutes, or off on your holidays from Heathrow Terminals 2 and 3.

Northwick Park Hospital

On the doorstep of Wembley Stadium, the Barbican of Brent offers unparalleled views of the beautiful Harrow on the Hill countryside and the home of English football.

On a clear day, you can even see all the way into central London.

Our services

The hospital is home to the country’s biggest – and busiest – emergency department. On average, our A&E team sees hundreds of people a day: many of whom need lifesaving, emergency care.

The regional rehabilitation unit sees hundreds of people a year who are recovering from major trauma. A truly multi-disciplinary team of nurses, therapists, and doctors, they help patients regain the things we all take for granted, like walking, talking, or even making a cup of tea on their own.

Meanwhile, our maternity team lovingly welcome thousands of babies a year into the world and our neonatal team look after some of our smallest patients.

Education and learning

Separately, Project Search, in collaboration with Harrow College and Kaleidoscope, gives students with special education needs or autism on the job training in a supportive environment. They intern with us for a year before graduating.

Some interns complete their care certificate with us, allowing them to assist with patient care. Others decide to join our admin teams.

Each year, most of our interns find employment after they graduate: many of them choose to stay with us.

History and the local area

Famously, Northwick Park Hospital was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1971.

The hospital and the local tube station take their name from the nearby park. Northwick Park sits in the shadow of Wembley Stadium, and it's a great place to sit and eat lunch or for walking meetings.

The hospital is a short walk from Northwick Park Station, on the Met line.

From there, you can explore Wembley Park for the outlet shopping, bars, and eateries. Or, head further south to Baker Street to visit royal parks, London Zoo, museums and other attractions, or east into the city for The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and boat rides up and down the Thames.

Our acute collaborative

We’re part of the North West London Acute Collaborative, a group of individual hospital trusts, which aims to make the most of our joint resources to better care for our communities.

Between us, we run 12 hospitals, employ around 33,000 teammates, and serve a local population of about 2.2 million people.

Research and education

On the top floor of our maternity building is our research team. From our purpose built clinical research facility, the team oversee commercial, non-commercial academic, and student-led research.

Each year, our clinicians recruit thousands of patients into research studies covering a whole range of specialties. Some of the Covid vaccines were even developed with our help.

We have satellite research offices at both Central and Ealing hospitals.

Locally, we have fantastic relationships with schools and colleges, offering work experience for 16 to 18-year-olds in Brent, Ealing, and Harrow.
